Blog Redesign. Even better look!

I've made some changes again.  This is how I've been spending my late night time this past week (as I eat mini pints of Haagen Dazs Peanut Butter and Chocolate ice cream). Researching ways to improve my blog, updating my header, adding a new background and learning how to add some CSS to change the font in my tabs, sidebars and post titles!

Fun, yes?

In a humble way, I must say that I think it is looking pretty good! I'm excited because I've slowly figured this out myself.  And I am hooked on finding ways to modify and edit.

But I can't seem to figure out how to move the "You might also like" section underneath the comments and still be above the separator line. Does that make sense to anyone?  If yes, and you know what to do - give a shout (please).

And there are definitely some other odds and ends that need fixing.  But that's for another night.

And I really do welcome your feedback.  Let me know what you think.



  1. Looks good! I love changing up mine too every so often! :) Do you do your own design? I do but just use blogger - yours doesn't look like something from blogger- what do you use? I like the connect buttons - I've seen that before but assume it must be some custom html or something.

    1. Hi Skye - Thanks!! I did do this design, and I did it in Photoshop elements. I don't know how to do coding that much, but in order to make some of the changes I did, I googled a ton until I could find tips and instructions (for adding background, for adding new font options to blogger, etc.). Let's see - the connect buttons were pretty easy to add - again, I googled "cute social media icons" and found some downloadable buttons with instructions. Let me try to find them and post it up for you.

      Thanks for commenting!

  2. I love your blog title! I'm now your newest FB follower :o)

    Thanks for joining the CHQ Blog Hop this week and good luck on the Quote the Walls giveaway! Don't forget, you can tweet about the giveaway daily for additional entries :o)

    1. Thanks Meredith! Glad you like! I just visited your site and I love your blog title too! Especially that you are using that expression in such a positive way - clever! :)

      I don't have a FB page for my blog at this point. I'm not sure I have enough followers or content! But that would be a good way to get more followers and promote the blog more - do you think I'm "ready"? Let me know if you have any suggestions.

  3. Well, I take that back...I meant to say Pinterest!!

    Do you have a FB page for your blog yet? You totally should!!
